          Wow! This is a pretty comprehensive post. The only ones I would add that I didn's see are:

          So Right - Dave Matthews
          I melt - Rascal Flatts

          And if you like "Your Love" by the Outfield, Katy Perry did a remake of it which is pretty cool.

            What an awesome thread! We're in a time crunch so this is helping a lot!
            One that I love, that I know have been in a lot of wedding videos is "Better Together" by Jack Johnson.

              - "I'm Yours" Jason Mraz
              - "Is this Love" Bob Marley

              Processional (Aisle Walk)

              - "Canon in D" Keith Kubena (great beachy guitar version)

              Signing of the Registry

              - "All I want is You" Barry Louis-Poliser

              First Dance

              - "Now we are Man and Wife" Michelle Featherstone

              Father Daughter Dance

              - "It's my Life" Bon Jovi (acoustic version-- very important song to my dad and I, he was super excited when I found an acoustic version.)

              Cake Cutting

              - "Eat It" Wierd Al Yankovic

              Garter Toss

                Haha, oh I forgot to mention-- my family has this tradition at weddings called "The Gator." It's this hilarious dance that my dad's family made up YEARS ago, where they all get into a circle and do this whole routine with their tie's around their heads-- halfway through my dad does a back flip in the middle of it all *fingers crossed he doesn't hurt himself*

                Anyway, this is always done to "White wedding" by BIlly Idol. LMAO! I can't wait!

                  I completely agree.. I love bright eyes and that is my favorite song!! I wanted to have that as my first dance but my FI feels it will be too sappy and will get people crying :)
